Mars' Loosed

it is addressed thusly:
And to those who struggle violently against each other; beware as well.

in four:
With roaring red and of flank and flame
The second morn's announcement came
From afar war comes to die
Lamp 'gainst lamp, lie 'gainst lie;

And from his pole old Mars is loosed
To fight is vain; the knight is noosed
Flaming out falls in the sea
Avenged the harmless, he will be!

in three:
In red of flank and flame
For second mornsign came
Our War drives far to die
Will fall both lamp and lie;

Of house is Mars now loosed
The sword is hung and noosed
Doused flame falls to the sea
O meek, your victory!
